Dr. Panchal has been invited to present his research at the national level and serves as a peer reviewer for Global Spine Journal, The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association, and World Journal of Orthopedics.
Dr. Panchal seeks to integrate his growing interest in spine pathophysiology and biomechanics with his humanistic inclinations to help provide the most comprehensive and compassionate neurosurgical care. Dr. Panchal has incorporated Telemedicine in his practice to bring neurosurgical care near the homes and care facilities of patients who otherwise would not be able to receive neurosurgical consultation.
Dr. Panchal’s clinical subspecialty is in the management of spinal disorders including trauma, tumors (spinal and intradural), degenerative disease and osteoporotic fractures, adult deformity, infection, complex spinal revision and reconstructive surgeries.
